I have 19 days until an 85 mile climbing event. I went and rode the climbs of that event this week while on my recovery week and had a few PRs on some of the segments. I just finished a training block and don’t feel like I should start another with that much time left. what’s the best way to preserve the fitness I have and maybe gain a little endurance between now and then? I don’t want to detrain, but also don’t want to over train so that I can go into the event well rested and primed. If I just stick to endurance workouts, will I lose top end power? Should I combine short VO2 max workouts with longer endurance segments into a single workout?
Thanks for any advice.
